Low-Key Nudes With Playboy Cover-Girl Amber Karis Bassick
I was approached by a pianist to take some quick portraits in the studio.
He wanted something a little different, something with character.
We didn’t have so much time but we managed to take some great photos….
I was looking over some photos of a model posed on a box in the studio I took a few years ago and I realised there were some great shots that I had not processed yet.
I tried something a little different here and started playing around with the colours.
The mother-to-be was a good friend and wanted some abstract close-up photos of her pregnant baby-belly and I was more than happy to have a pregnancy shoot with her. She was 8 1/2 months pregnant and we were a little worried that we would not have time for the shoot before the baby arrived. Fortunately for us, the baby did not come early as expected and we were able to take this series of her stunningly beautiful baby-belly.
Here I chose a grey background with some low-key lighting to give a classic black-and-white feel to the photos
[:en]I think Carry has an interesting sweet and innocent yet somehow bad girl look and I thought I would play on this with some weapons and a nun costume.
I tried a few different colour effects and I think the red fiery effect is perfect for this scene![:]
